Indian Trail and Academy High School recently placed two employees on leave for allegations of misconduct. One of those employees, Michael Russell, is a Computer Technician. According to a tip and confirmed by KUSD administration, Russell was placed on leave on February 27, 2023 after the district was made aware of misconduct allegations. Russell is still on paid leave. No further details can be released from the school district at this time becuase it is an ongoing investigation.
A second employee of ITA was also alleged to have committed misconduct, and was placed on leave on January 18, 2023, a day after the allegations were reported. The investigation was concluded on January 20, 2023. He is back at work. KCE isn’t naming this employee, as we do not know what the allegations were and if he was disciplined. We made a request for his disciplinary file and will follow-up if appropriate.
This is a breaking story.
